Ra Medical Systems Announces Results of its Special Meeting of Stockholders and a 1-for-50 Reverse Stock Split

CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ra Medical Systems, Inc. (NYSE American: RMED) (“Ra Medical” or the “Company”) announces that at its virtual Special Meeting of Stockholders held today, the Company’s stockholders approved all three proposals on the proxy filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 29, 2022. The Company also announces that its Board of Directors has approved a 1-for-50 reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock, with an effective time of 4:01 p.m. Eastern time on September 30, 2022. The Company’s common stock is expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis at commencement of trading on Monday, October 3, 2022.

“We thank our stockholders for voting to pass all Special Meeting proposals. In addition to assisting us with maintaining our listing with the NYSE American exchange, this vote is an important step toward completing our planned merger with Catheter Precision, which our board believes offers the best path for value creation for our company,” said Will McGuire, Ra Medical CEO. “We plan to file a proxy in the coming weeks for another Special Meeting that will allow our stockholders to vote on the proposed merger with Catheter Precision. Assuming the merger proposal passes and the other conditions under the merger agreement are satisfied, we expect to complete the transaction by the end of 2022.”

Results of the Special Meeting of Stockholders

At the September 20, 2022 Special Meeting of Stockholders, the following proposals were approved:

  • Proposal No. 1 – Warrant Exercise Proposal: The issuance of more than 19.99% of the Company’s outstanding common stock upon the exercise of the Company’s Series C Common Stock Purchase Warrants. The passage of this proposal provides for the immediate right for the potential exercise to occur and was required in accordance with NYSE American Company Guide Section 713(a);
  • Proposal No. 2 – Reverse Stock Split Proposal: To amend the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock that is issued and outstanding or held in treasury at a stock split ratio of between 1-for-20 and 1-for-50. Passage of the proposal authorized the Company’s board of directors to institute the reverse stock split, including the selection of timing and ratio of the reverse stock split; and
  • Proposal No. 3 – Adjournment Proposal: To continue the Special Meeting of Stockholders if necessary to continue solicitation of votes for Proposals No. 1 & No. 2.

Reverse Stock Split

The reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of Ra Medical’s common stock outstanding from approximately 54,514,828 shares to approximately 1,090,296 shares, but will not change the authorized number of shares of common stock, which will remain at 300,000,000 shares of common stock. The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE American Stock Market under the symbol “RMED.” The new CUSIP number for the common stock following the reverse stock split will be 74933X 302.

The reverse stock split supports maintenance of the Company’s NYSE American listing. On September 2, 2022, Ra Medical announced receipt of a notice that the NYSE American LLC had determined the Company’s securities had been selling at a low price per share for a substantial period of time. Pursuant to Section 1003(f)(v) of the NYSE American Company Guide, the Company’s continued listing is predicated on it effecting a reverse stock split of its common stock or otherwise demonstrating sustained price improvement within a reasonable period of time, which the NYSE American has determined to be no later than February 28, 2023.

The reverse stock split will affect all stockholders uniformly and will not alter any stockholder’s percentage interest in the Company’s equity, except to the extent that the reverse stock split would result in a stockholder owning a fractional share. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split. Stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to receive a fractional share will instead be entitled to receive cash in lieu of such fractional share from the Company’s transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC. Holders of the Company’s common stock held in book-entry form or through a bank, broker or other nominee do not need to take any action in connection with the reverse stock split. Stockholders of record will be receiving information from the Company’s transfer agent regarding their common stock ownership post-reverse stock split.

In addition, pursuant to their terms, a proportionate adjustment will be made to the per share exercise price and number of shares issuable under all of the Company’s outstanding equity awards, and the number of shares authorized and reserved for issuance pursuant to the Company’s equity incentive plans will be reduced proportionately.

Furthermore, pursuant to their terms, a proportionate adjustment will be made to the per share exercise price and number of shares issuable under all of the Company’s outstanding warrants.

Proposed Merger Agreement

On September 12, 2022, Ra Medical announced entering into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with privately held Catheter Precision, Inc., a medical device and technology company focused in the field of cardiac electrophysiology. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Catheter Precision will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Ra Medical in a stock-for-stock reverse merger transaction (the “Merger”). If completed, the Merger will result in a combined publicly traded company that will focus on the cardiac electrophysiology market, one of the most robust and growing areas of medical devices.

Catheter Precision has three product areas that it intends to pursue. Its lead product, named VIVO™ (an acronym for View Into Ventricular Onset) is an FDA-cleared and CE mark product that utilizes non-invasive inputs to locate the origin of ventricular arrhythmias, and, through its use, the physician can identify patients for invasive catheter ablation, and with those patients, reduce the amount of time in the invasive procedure. Ventricular arrhythmias include ventricular tachyarrhythmias and premature ventricular arrhythmias, diseases that affect millions of patients who are not well treated today. While much past growth in the electrophysiology market has been for atrial fibrillation, Catheter Precision believes that ventricular arrhythmias represent a large growth area moving forward. It also intends to pursue a second generation of Amigo®, a robotic arm previously cleared by the FDA and awarded the CE mark, which serves as a catheter control device that can be remotely controlled outside of the procedure room. Catheter Precision has demonstrated that patient outcomes could potentially be enhanced by utilization of this device. Catheter Precision is working toward a third product release in the first half of 2023, which is a vessel closure device that would assist in the closure of the insertion site of the percutaneous catheter or other device used within the body. It is estimated that the worldwide market for this closure assist device is over one million procedures per year.

Medtech veteran David Jenkins, who has extensive experience growing medical device start-ups, will serve as Chief Executive Officer of the combined company. Before taking the role as CEO of Catheter Precision, Mr. Jenkins was instrumental in operating several medical device start-ups, including Transneuronix, Inc., which was acquired by Medtronic plc (NYSE: MDT) for $267 million in July 2005, and EP MedSystems, Inc., which was acquired by St. Jude Medical for $95.7 million in July 2008.

The Merger is expected to close before the end of 2022, subject to satisfying certain closing conditions, including the receipt of shareholder approval by both companies. The descriptions of the Merger, the proposals to be voted on in connection with the Merger at the Ra Medical Special Meeting of Stockholders, Catheter Precision and the other transactions and matters contemplated thereby or referenced herein do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Company’s Current Reports on Form 8-K, including the Current Reports on Form 8-K filed on September 12, 2022 and September 2, 2022, the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2022 and any prior or subsequent reports on Form 10-K, Form 10-Q or Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) from time to time and available on the SEC website.
